And now with a little bit of mud on it:
As for upgrades to the Trance ... are you kidding? I'm coming from a 14 year old bike that was already outdated 12 years ago. I'm happy I kept the Specialized running so long, but there is no comparison. It was so nice having (in order of what I appreciated most): (1) Brakes that just work and don't let a little mud or water get in the way of their job; (2) gears that simply shift when you press/pull the lever even if maybe you should have made that shift 100 feet earlier before cranking up the hill; (3) suspension that, like the gears, just worked without complaint.
So, nope, no upgrades any time soon unless I break something. (Of course, I reserve the right to change my mind about that if I come across a good deal on a Fox 32 or something similar.)
